This intimate garden in NW Washington, DC, provided the right combination of constraints and opportunities that result in a successful project. The constraints were two-fold, including a strict Home Owner's Association, and very limited square footage. The opportunities included artloving clients, and a wide-ranging palette of materials, both minimal and contemporary in nature.

The design took the form of an urban jewel box - with the more publicly visible areas remaining relatively untouched to blend with the surrounding townhouses, and the interior garden 'wrapped' in a rich combination of mahogany and evergreen hedges.

This project was designed by Sarah Trautvetter as Landscape Architect at Graham Landscape Architecture.
